A Three Fold Cord not Easily Broken
Most marriages don’t have a three fold cord.” Most marriages don’t stay “happily-ever married-after all.”
It’s dangerous to think that relationships should be easy all the time. Because if you believe, “When I find my true love, I will live happily married ever after all,” then, at a time when you’re not happy, you could easily conclude: “He or she must not be my true love.”
But you might be wrong.
There are times when we need to keep going even though it’s difficult at times. There are times when we have to find new ways even though we’re discouraged. This is called deepening commitment, mutual understanding and God’s covenant between the two of you. It’s the faith that the difficult path leads to a better time and a better place.
Difficulty and discouragement are not necessarily signs that “all is lost.” Yes, sometimes difficulty suggests “we need to let it go.” But other times difficulty suggests “keep on going’” and “perseverance occurs.” For most people, Real Love comes AFTER difficulty and discouragement, not before.
Our Prayer for You Today!
Help the couples to sense your presence. Forgive them when they have been reluctant to be broken in their marriage. Help them to understand that your presence today is what they need. Help them to have discipline in their lives and forgive them right now. Help them to make a decision to look at their inner self and heart. Help them to renew their mind because the venom is eating at their souls. Help them to sense your presence and peace. In Jesus Name. Amen.
